Simple and Elegant Golden Anniversary Greeting Card

The photos aren't the greatest, so I apologize.  I really like the way this card turned out.  My friend asked me to make a golden anniversary card for her aunt and uncle.  I have to admit, I've never made an anniversary card for a couple celebrating that milestone!  I decided to go simple and elegant.

 The base of this card is Very Vanilla.  I then layered the shimmery gold paper, and added the dry embossed layer of Very Vanilla. 

 I heat embossed the sentiment in gold.  THANK YOU NORMA for letting me use your anniversary stamp!  I forgot to look what Stampin Up set it comes from.  If you know, please drop me a comment and let me know.
I finished the card with some leaf punches from the bird punch, and some paper petals with a pearl center.

Thanks for looking!
